"The images in the second issue, dated January 2011, look like they come from a variety of sources and periods, from 19th-century crime scene to French New Wave film still. On the grimy wall next to a dark stairwell, someone has scrawled the word HOPE, with an arrow pointing down; on a blood-splattered table, a knife, a meaty heart, and a horseshoe spell out IOU. Knowing Cattelan’s bent for the perverse and the outrageous, it will come as no surprise that all these images are his own—made in collaboration with Italian photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari and a crew of clever co-conspirators..."
–Vince Aletti, Photograph Magazine

CATTELAN TAKES A BREAK?

Maurizio Cattelan is ready for a “creative break.” Süddeutsche Zeitung cites an interview with the artist in the Italian daily La Repubblica. The fifty-one-year-old, who splits his time between New York and Milan, is also looking to get some distance from “the market and the polemics” in order to define his existence in the art market and to strengthen his independence. Currently, Cattelan is working with the photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari on the magazine Toilet Paper––and little else. The second edition of the magazine, sponsored by Fondazione Trussardi, was recently presented in Milan. According to the report, working on Toilet Paper fascinated Cattelan more than an event with his art in the Guggenheim Museum. “When that became clear to me,” said Cattelan, he knew there was only one decision: “I have to stop.” - ARTFORUM.com

"TOILET PAPER, a visual communication project that grew out of a collaboration between artist Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari, is a next-generation magazine that combines commercial photography, twisted narratives and surreal imagery to create a series of powerful, ambiguous visual tableaux.
Maurizio Cattelan is once again challenging the rules of the contemporary cultural system that he himself belongs to, subverting its paradigms: this time, by pokink fun at the world of slick magazines and stuffy, self-referential art critics. TOILET PAPER fearlessly builds a bridge between commercial photography and fine art, relying on the camera of well-known Italian photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari to create an archive of images that seem to bring Cattelan's dreams, fixations and nightmares to life. In an interview with the Italian edition of Vogue, Pierpaolo Ferrari commented, 'The magazine springs from a passion/obsession that Maurizio and I have in common. Each picture springs from an idea, even a simple one, and then becomes a complex orchestration of people who build tableaux vivants. This project is also a sort of mental outburst'.
–Art Report, March, 2011

  

DESTE FOUNDATION FOR CONTEMPORARY ART

Toilet Paper: Issue 2

Edited by Maurizio Cattelan, Pierpaolo Ferrari.

Brought to you by the aberrant, animated mind of Italian-born provocateur, mischief-maker, and macabre witness to our times Maurizio Cattelan, Toilet Paper 2 follows closely on the heels of the inaugural issue of Cattelan's most recent print extravaganza. "The magazine springs from a passion/obsession that Maurizio and I have in common," collaborator photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari said in an interview in Vogue Italia. "Each picture springs from an idea, even a simple one, and then becomes a complex orchestration of people who build tableaux vivants. This project is also a sort of mental outburst." Published by Deste, this part magazine, part artist's book blends commercial photography with warped narratives and surrealistic imagery, creating a series of powerful images that are as appropriate for the coffee table as they are for the WC.
